I, on the other hand, have been messing about in boats for 11 years now and never even knew that the marlinspike was for undoing seized knots. I thought it was for splicing, which seemed strange to me. Who needs to splice in a hurry....

Now that I know the spike is for getting stuck knots un-stuck I now want one at the ready at all times. Man have I been missing out.....


I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
